"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

"Truth is like poetry and most people  f.....ng hate poetry" 

On reflection. I think that's  probably true. 

I haven't stopped contributing to the conversation. I comment on Facebook regularly. It's instant and less work.

Chris Ballard's machinations  were a distraction. A story waits to be told but it's entirely negative ...full of twists and turns ...and involves many more than myself. 

There's no merit in advancing it at this time and it may never. Yet it occupied my thoughts long 
enough to fall out of a routine that had already become erratic. 

I never made a decision to stop writing. 
Yet I did.
 I knew it wasn't permanent.
 But every day restart  was deferred. 

I don't know how many still tune in but you do matter.

I will be back in force ...maybe  to-morrow. 

On page 15 of last week's Auroran, a final  paragraph on a story headlined how 
capital  projects will be paid, deserves particular attention. It's the end of a lengthy and tedious 
report. Quite likely to be overlooked. 

If I had my druthers, it would have been front page with a blaring, trumpeting headline. 

Stephanie may help me with cut and copy .

Then we can examine it together and jointly determine its significance.  

Councillor Mrakas has a quarterly news letter on-line. References are current to the unfinished joint facility and funds are included in this year's budget to complete the project. 

We will connect  the dots and see where it takes us.

Oh...just hearing the name let alone seeing him in the media makes me cringe. He fits in well with that Wynn group. Self centered, pompous, entitled, likes to spend money (none of it his own of course). All to improve their quality of life.
